Audio hookup with new tv

Posted by uncle mag on December 15, 2019 at 12:51:48:

Guys, I could use some help. I just got a new Samsung Qled tv and I want to hook up the audio to my preamps rca input.

The tv has an optical out which I ran to a Schiit Modi multibit dac, then rcas to the pre, and all I get is a fast ticking sound. Did I miss something there?

There is also an HDMI out port, will an HDMI to rca cable to the preamp work or is some kind of converter needed?

The tv is excellent, but I like running the sound through my stereo. The preamp is a MAC c2200 with no home theatre gadgets inside.

Thanks much!
